If you actually read Will's article you'd see it is Trump's ignorance of basic issues and lack of common knowledge that concerns him and other thinking Republicans.

That's why I couldn't vote for him and abstained by voting third-party
even though I was in a swing state. In retrospect, I might have voted
for him because he was likely to fulfill his major campaign promise -- not
being Hillary Clinton.

I read it. He makes accusations that have been effectively
challenged without acknowledging those challenges.
George Will is being dishonest.
 
Several intelligent people, including leaders of other countries,
when finally having a conversation with President Trump discover
he has a good grasp of situations and asks intelligent questions.
Benjamin Netanyahu is one. Condoleeza Rice is the most recent
to change her mind.
 
"I found him on top of his brief, and I found him asking really good questions."
 
<http://dailycaller.com/2017/05/09/condoleezza-rice-praises-trump-i-found-him-asking-really-good-questions/>
 
This is another effective challenge to George Will's thesis.
 
President Trump does not address himself to the doctrinaire.
President Trump does not address himself to you or to George Will.
 
| It is urgent for Americans to think and speak clearly about
| President Trump's inability to do either. This seems to be not a
| mere disinclination but a disability. It is not merely the result
| of intellectual sloth but of an untrained mind bereft of
| information and married to stratospheric self-confidence.
 
This lead paragraph of George Will's article says exactly what
I say it does.

Buck up, press - soon your trump love will be so black swan-ish he's sure to take notice!

"There is no way to spin or sugarcoat these sagging numbers," Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, said in a statement.
 
"The erosion of white men, white voters without college degrees and independent voters, the declaration by voters that President Donald Trump's first 100 days were mainly a failure and deepening concerns about Trump's honesty, intelligence and level headedness are red flags that the administration simply can't brush away," Malloy added.
 
 
What surprised me most in november is that folks already needed this reminder of what happens when you give wingers unfettered rule. Eight years shouldn't be long enough to forget the last disaster. How could so many folks buy into the "what a slow recovery" argument without being smacked in the face with the whole "we had to recover from something" and the dawning realization that "something" mapped to 2001-2007, no holds bar republican rule?
 
Well, we're reminded. Properly reminded. Gotta find those silver linings!
 
Cheers.

Sure, press. Just another logic unicorn, like being arrested for resisting arrest - and nothing else.

My genealogical research has caused me to look from England to the
Urals after the Ice Age.
 
I believe the Saxons migrated to England from Germany after the Romans
left. I think the Vikings were mostly coastal raiders. Please corrrect
me if I am wrong.

_The Tudors_ is great. Also heavy going.
Had to take it slowly because it is intense.

In your case "uninformed" means not a left wing liberal loon.

I like Dwayne Johnson. However, his presidential aspirations bring to mind something else altogether.

Well... to nitpick, I'm not sure scientists ever claimed any / all of those things, grant.
 
But your larger point, that any point in time snapshot of our current scientific understanding has errors, is right on. That's one of the main things that separates science from religion - no finality, constantly testing for cracks then using those cracks to improve understanding.
 
It seems highly unlikely, for instance, that Einstein has had some final say of gravity.
 
Operationally, I think that truth would be a poor reason to ignore our current understanding of gravity while designing a skyscraper.
 
That's the larger point. Consensus isn't truth, but it still has a lot of value and shouldn't be ignored because some rich lobbyists find that consensus to be unfavorable. See tobacco, cancer.
 
Cheers.

In other words, because science evolves we should ignore it completely, right?

The Congressional Review Act is being used by the current
administration to nullify many acts by the previous
administration. There is a time limit on how long after the act
is in place in which it can be nullified by the CRA; a time limit
that expires this week. _But_ the time limit only applies to acts
properly submitted to Congress. In fact many such acts were not
properly submitted; hence they are not subject to the time limit.
Furthermore
 
| Todd Gaziano, a top official at Pacific Legal who was the chief
| legislative counsel to the CRA's sponsor, former Rep. David
| McIntosh (R-Ind.), said over the years agencies have failed to
| properly report hundreds if not thousands of rules to Congress as
| mandated by the CRA. This, he argues, renders the rules legally
| unenforceable.
|
| Gaziano would like agencies to immediately dispense with all
| enforcement actions. He said since the launch of his website,
| redtaperollback.com, he has been fielding hundreds of calls from
| interested lawyers.
|
| Wayne Crews, vice president for policy and director of technology
| studies at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said if rules
| are identified that were not properly submitted to Congress, he
| expects there will be legal challenges by affected parties.
|
| Gaziano said Pacific Legal is already looking into adding this
| argument to currently pending cases against enforced rules, and
| potentially bringing new lawsuits against rules he said are being
| enforced illegally.
